In this publication, the teacher's responsibilities in career education have been delineated from an examination of past and present teacher's roles as well as selected programs which directly and indirectly define the teacher's responsibilities. Some of these responsibilities include: (1) assessing needs, (2) commitment to career education goals, (3) curriculum development, (4) helping students develop self, occupational, and educational awareness, (5) adapting ideas from other models and teachers, and (6) assuming leadership inservice programs. In order to prepare teachers to meet their responsibilities, preservice and inservice teacher education programs should cover: (1) documenting the need for career education, (2) explication of the career education concept, (3) information about business, industry, and labor, (4) sources of information and utilization of resources, (5) implementation strategies, and (6) developing guidance and counseling skills. These components of an inservice or preservice program are discussed along with descriptions of several existing and proposed preservice and inservice programs. (SB) ?
